The real estate fund makes two appointments to management positions
Adelaide real estate investment firm Leyton Funds has recruited long-time CFO from Rivergum Homes Kelly menzies and Mirvac Asset Manager Eamonn Ansell to his team.
Ansell – whose career has spanned Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney with LJ Hooker, JLL and most recently Mirvac – has been appointed investment manager and responsible for leading the investment management team of Leyton Funds.
His three years as an asset manager at Mirvac in Sydney saw him overseeing a “substantial” portfolio of institutional grade investment assets, according to Leyton Funds.
Ansell’s new employers have over $ 175 million in assets under management, with a primary focus on commercial, industrial and retail real estate
âI have been watching the company for quite some time and have been impressed not only with the growth that has been achieved, but also with the way the team has gone about it,â said Ansell.
âI am delighted to join us and to be able to bring what I have learned from a national perspective in this setting. “
Meanwhile, Menzies has been appointed the new CFO of Leyton Funds, after an eight-year stint with Rivergum Group in the same role.
She was a corporate accountant for the Adelaide construction company BADGE Constructions before moving to Rivergum in 2013.
Leyton Funds chief executive Warwick Mittiga said the appointments would help the company meet its growth commitments.
âAs we grow our assets under management, we need the best people to continue to implement our approach of actively managing real estate investments,â said Mittiga.
âThis is why we are particularly pleased to have been able to recruit talented individuals of the caliber of Eamonn and Kelly. “
